There are movies that I say, when I was a kid yes New York‘s my home, regardless of the grittiness. There are movies since maybe the late 1940’s. That are shot exclusively in New York City. The Naked City from 1948 comes to mine first a great crime drama Starring Barry Fitzgerald, and Howard Duff, I remember as the first film shot totally on location in New York initializing most of the 5 borough of the city. There are certain directors who love New York, and what it has to offer as a back drop.
